Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal adds another milestone to his career after winning the Barcelona Open for the ninth time, putting him on equal ground with the current record held by Guillermo Villas as having the most titles in clay court with 49. The 29-year old beat the defending champion, Kei Nishikori, in straight sets, 6-4, 7-5 to claim the title.
He's been always favored to win in a tournament on clay since that has been his forte all throughout his career. But this one is special for the 14-time grand slam victor since it puts him on record books. And at such a young age, he definitely can surpass that mark by Vila.
Nadal also has a rare chance of doing something that only a few have done, which is to win three major titles in one year. He already hoisted the Monte Carlo trophy last week, got the Barcelona Open today, and can cap it off with a win at the French Open scheduled for next month. more >>
